Curiouser and curiouser!

"I wonder if I've been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I'm not the same, the next question is 'Who in the world am I?' Ah, that's the great puzzle!"

If Alice grew up to become a fashion designer she must have changed her name to Erin Fetherston. One of the most delightful, lovely, and completely fantastical designers, Erin takes you to worlds and times that exist only in dreams. Mad Hats, Ribbons and Lace, Furry Little Animals... this fairy tail of a 2009 Fall/Winter collection has it all! Ha. And those are just the accessories! Perfectly tailored suits walked down the runway alongside high wasted minis, flowing collars, umbrella skirts, angular hemlines, and a ball gown fit for a White Queen.

Oh, to have this collection in my closet...
A girl can dream, can't she?

Go ahead. Take a peek through the looking glass!

Love love.

Style Icon.

A lovely artist in so many respects. Style that is superb, fun, androgynous, sophisticated, and free. You have to take risks before you get it right and she has gotten it right all across the board. Love it.


Actress. Actress. Actress.

Oh the sights in New Orleans! I really am falling in love with this little city nestled alongside the Mississippi. L, my dear friend who recently graduated from Tulane, first introduced me to The Big Easy in perfect cajan fashion... daiquiris, beignets, and laying out by the levee.

Now it was my turn to stroll the sidewalks of the French Quarter with a first time friend of my own. My turn to know exactly where I was going. My turn to say, "You just HAVE to try a hurricane". My turn to know just which restaurants to try and boutiques to splurge at. OH, did I mention this was only my third time there... yup... a bit overwhelming! Ha.

Don't worry. I didn't get too lost.

The city was perfect! Grey stone buildings, iron-rod balconies, and bronze statues complemented the neon signs of Burbon St, brick homes in the Vieux, and the vibrant greenery growing from every nook and cranny the city had to offer. It was like the city couldn't make up it's mind... neutrals or color? A question I often find myself pondering at around ten in the morning when I finally decide to get out of my house for the day.

Now, I LOVE blacks, grays, tans and taupes BUT there is always a necessity for a pop of color... maybe two pops... maybe three... sometimes all color is called for.

And you know? I LOVE that too!

Bye for now!

I LOVE my friends! I am constantly amazed at their talent! Each has their own unique way of taking in the world and expressing it outwardly. Acting, painting, dancing, singing, screenwriting, playing the guitar, piano, bass, mandolin, crunching numbers in finance, accounting, creating slogans and ads, traveling, photography, politics, film, fashion... I am constantly being inspired! AND each of my lovely friends have these perfect styles that complement their various personality types and talents... exactly what style should do! Right?

Dawson, who I absolutely adore, is my favorite music genius. Listening to him talk about the musical components of a Radiohead song is like listening to a philosopher talk about the beginning of time. His passion for music comes straight from his heart. You can just see it in his eyes, he has so much appreciation for the craft. Such a talent. He also has this wonderfully laid back yet put together style. He, and friend Phillip, lead a band who play covers in the genre I will call 'Southern Comfort Rock & Roll'. Now, when talking about music I am clearly out of my element... CLEARLY. So I'll just jump back into what I love talking about... style. I just love the perfectly un-put-together look these guys pull off.

Oxfords and headbands, plaids and loafers. Something so southern sophisticate yet independently careless. I don't know what it is... 'Southern Comfort Rock & Roll'? Ha. Maybe. Whatever it is these boys are classic. Well, classic with a twist~

See ya!
